From a colorful backyard hideaway to an uptown chic nook complete with a party-ready bar cart, this year on Instagram, your favorite posts had one thing in common: lots of light! Neutral tones interspersed with pops of sunshine brights were the order of the day, alongside natural wood textures and the requisite touch of greenery. Let’s take a closer look at the best interior design Instagram posts of 2018!
Top Interior Design Instagram Posts 2018
The Bedroom Showstopper
Wood textures abound in this showstopping geometric-inspired bedroom by A61 Architectural Bureau. Tall ceilings and a double-height window bring all the drama, catching the eye of our followers to become one of the most liked posts of the year. Our favorite part of this space? The wood panel ceilings of course. They work to draw the eye upwards, emphasizing the impressive height of this room even further. We loved it so much that we got our friends over at NONAGON.studio to recreate this design. Now that’s high praise indeed!
The Uptown Chic Bar Cart
Pretty and functional, with a party-approved twist, this uptown chic bar cart went down a storm earlier this year. Not that we’re at all surprised; a bar cart is always fun and just a little bit extra – essentially the epitome of millennial IG culture. A monochrome frame and vintage glassware ups the sophistication factor to ensure this homegrown drinking hole remains classy, no matter what round of drinks you’re on.
The Statement Rug
Festive hues and mesmerizing prints collide in the unashamedly bold kilim rug. This eclectic darling is the ultimate interior pick-me-up. You loved it best styled in a neutral, mid-century modern nook, but we think it would work just as well in a busy boho boudoir or as a loud statement within a classically minimal aesthetic.
The Eco-Chic Bathroom
To our surprise, it wasn’t the garden-inspired spa or elegant marble washroom which was Instagram’s favorite bathroom of the year. Instead, our followers preferred something a little more stripped back and raw. Natural textures reign supreme here, with open wood shelves, a rattan ladder turned towel rack, and faded concrete walls. Black accents complete the look, adding polish to an otherwise no frills take on the eco-chic bathroom.
The Backyard Hideaway
And the award for most liked post of the year goes to this dreamy backyard hideaway. What we love about this ‘gram is how it captures the very essence of summer. Clashing patterns and a hanging swing chair exude sunshine and happy vibes. Meanwhile, the abundance of green plants makes it feel like you’re deep within the tropics. Overall, this post stokes wanderlust and summer daydreams; it’s no wonder it was your favorite of the year!
